A Visiting Professorship
To coincide with the launch of our new space, we're creating a new Visiting Professorship of Creative Writing. This prestigious post, appointed every two years, will contribute to teaching and research, bringing expertise, creativity and new perspectives to the Centre’s expanding degree programmes, events, outreach activities and collaborations.
The Visiting Professor will join our other Professors, Visiting Scholars, and Faculty as we grow global partnerships and opportunities, raising the international profile of the Centre, Queen’s and Ireland’s writers past present and future. This will play an important role not only in attracting the best writers from around the world, but also in helping to connect local writers globally.
Current visiting scholars
We maintain relationships with visiting academics after their terms end, continuing to work together and celebrate successes.
This year, fomer Fulbright Scholar Jenny Browne and her students at Trinity University in Texas joined our MA in Poetry students in our 2021 Ekphrasis Project. Our first cross-Atlantic poetry pamphlet and film is coming soon!
